Hi Bob, I thought I had "limited" the number of files on the old unit, but maybe I forgot to cross my tongue. :-) I'll try again. You know, it's interesting to work on a problem like this when one is not desperate; that is, I still can do my work and enjoy email even why the old unit just sits. It's a learning curve thing. :-) Carl ----- Original Message ----- From: "Bob Noble" <bnoble@xxxxxxxxx> To: <pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> Sent: Friday, May 16, 2003 10:53 AM Subject: [pcductape] Re: transfer of files > Hi Carl, > It sounds like you need to pick fewer files to transfer at a time to me. > I only tried the transfer wizard once and I didn't limit the files it tried to > transfer, until the second try. :O) > > And the answer should be yes, but you need to set up the direct cable network, > and get it going, before you try the windows explorer. > > Bob Noble > www.sonic.net/bnoble > ----- Original Message ----- > From: "Carl" <ctm007@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx> > To: <pcductape@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> > Sent: Friday, May 16, 2003 6:16 AM > Subject: [pcductape] Re: transfer of files > > > Hi Pam, > > The two computers are not networked as via cable via modem but are connected by > crossover cable which are plugged into the network cards.
